On today’s Intelligent Money Minute, we’ll interview Kathleen Rehl on why you should leave a legacy letter. It’s wise to have your final will and testament in order, but your possessions aren’t the most valuable gift for family and friends. Kathleen says, “you can give loved ones a far more precious treasure that’s a legacy of who you are.” During this episode, Kathleen talks about the priceless value of leaving your family and friends a legacy letter.
Your family will likely read and re-read a legacy letter should something happen to you. As Kathleen said, your family will likely pull out and look at a legacy letter that you have written more often then they will pull out your final will and testament. We also talked about our core values which spell out the word, CLIENT. If you’d like to know more about Intelligent Investing’s core values, please visit here.
